She probably developed quite a good
"life list" without really knowing it which included Semi-Palmated Sandpiper at Ogmore-By-Sea,Spotted Sandpiper at Lisvane,Alpine Swift at Eglwys,Shore Lark at Whitford and Norfolk,Red Backed Shrike at Kenfig,Cattle Egret at Pennard,Richard's Pipit at Llanilid,Waxwings everywhere a few years ago,several GG Shrikes and Black Eared Kite amongst a variety of good birds in Norfolk.
Her "life list" would probably be somewhere between 200-250,the envy of a number of birders !!
It's been really strange this last few weeks not being greeted by her on my return from work in the evenings and even stranger her not accompanying me on the recent twitches at Kenfig,she'd have especially loved the long walk out for the Short-Toed Lark.A number of Glamorgan birders have asked "where's the dog" ?
We really miss her and the house is so quiet without her around,we've decided that we will probably get another Westie but have agreed to leave it until the caravan season is complete and we have taken our main summer holiday,so look out lads when we go birdin' in the autumn we'll have another little friend joining us !!
